I was feeling symptoms for probably a solid two plus years but I had thought it was due to fitness so I ignored it. So when the doctor told me that I had Stage 3, I’m not going to lie, I actually fainted and woke up on a gurney. Cause I was at the healthiest I’d ever been
in in my entire life. I was shocked…I didn’t think the pain I was feeling for two years would end up becoming a disease like cancer. And it was important to get my body back stonger than ever after each surgery because without it I don’t know If I would have been able to beat this. When you get diagnosed or have a family member, friend, loved one get diagnosed, the one thing you want to make sure of is that they are being treated in a facility, in a place where they know how to treat them. And without people supporting the foundation. There’s no way for them to continue going at the rate that they’re going. So people need to support them because they know what they’re doing and they have a sense of professionalism in the chemo ward, at the front desk area, that they really understand their patients when their patients are having whether it be a good or bad day. I never went to a chemotherapy session not fully in an outfit. I made sure that I felt good, I looked good. I had my mom take a picture everytime I finished a session for me to upload to my social media and update everybody who was wondering how did the appointment go and is he okay? And that really was very therapeutic for me throughout the entire process. Princess Margaret allowed me to see that light at the end of the tunnel and if it wasn’t for that feeling I never would have thought I would have
made it to the end. And I did.
